Here in the Baby Routes household we are big fans of Joules clothing and their country twist on things. Our favourite local store is placed temptingly close to our walking route every time we go to town and I have come home a few times recently with unscheduled purchases for the girls (and me…)!
Just as the winter welly season kicks off (well, here at least we have a few more weeks of Californian sunshine before we hit that reality) Joules are running a competition with a bit of a difference that will interest the creative outdoorsy folk amongst you. They are asking you to design your very own welly!
The winning design will go on sale at Joules.Com with the proceeds from the sale of the limited edition winning welly being donated to Joules’ charity partners via CHARITABLY JOULES. The winning designer will receive a luxury break worth £5000 including 3 nights in a golden oak treehouse cabin with Forest Holidays. I’ve been on one of their breaks before although not in the top-end accommodation and it was a really lovely experience and perfect for families. For ten lucky runners-up, Joules are also offering a £250 Joules gift card.
I’ve already had a go at trying to think up a welly design but didn’t get very far…I am still working on perfecting my stick people and art is definitely not my forte! Could be a fun one for adults with an eye for colour or a rainy day activity for the kids though? I thought about trying to get ‘raining cats and dogs’ into welly form or plastering a welly boot in oak leaves and pheasants – two of our local nature walk staples. Unfortunately both ideas were beyond my artistic abilities – feel free to borrow them if you like!
If you do enter, good luck! I’d love to know what you go for. In the meantime, happy welly walking and puddle splashing. I’ve heard that it’s definitely time to get out the waterproof footwear in an autumnal UK. Don’t worry, we’ll be back joining you on those muddy winter walks very soon!
You can enter the competition with your design for a welly on the Joules website at http://getcreative.joules.com/. The competition is open until 4th December and you can enter up to 5 designs per email address.
